The demand to visualize bus data on a smartphone or tablet has been answered by the Android software Flex Config Analyzer, developed by Star, with which CAN, LIN, as well as Flexray data can be depicted on mobile devices. According to the Germany-based company, the system is ready for use in a short amount of time and can be utilized by inexperienced users. It establishes a wireless connection with a fitting bus interface via Bluetooth or WLAN. By doing so, new display sets can be established, saved, and visualized on the touch screens of mobile devices in a short period of time.

For the 3.1 update, numerous features and functions have been integrated. For example, CAN FD signals can be processed and visualized, supporting both the ISO and the non-ISO mode of CAN FD. Users who already generate gateways and remaining bus simulations with Star’s Flex Config RBS software and execute them on a Flex Device-L, profit from the added parallel function: Flex Config Analyzer 3.1 allows them to visualize the signals of a gateway or remaining bus simulation while in actual operation and to check their correct functionality. Furthermore, the developers have introduced an update mechanism for Fibex and Autosar description files with which existing display sets can be reused after an update and which do not have to be designed from scratch.
